Hi Flynn,
I'm using "Custom Taxonomies" to create a taxonomy called 'hotel'. Using a widget to Choose Hotel, both the Atahualpa sidebars disappear (whether left+right or both right). I've tried to use a taxonomy-hotel.php file based on the index.php file, to no avail. It seems to have a problem somewhere in the footer.php file (?). Can you help?

what version of Atahualpa, WP, PHP?
What is the URL?
Is the widget part of the 'Custom Taxonomies' or a different widget? if so what is it?
IF you are on WP 2.8.x did you note the message at the plugin homepage? -

If you are using WordPress 2.8, might I recommend Simple Taxonomies, which has a few of the features Iíve been waiting for better APIs to implement.

Ata 3.4.2, WP 2.8.3 (although was also same with 2.7.1), PHP 5.x, URL www.nctravel.com.au. The widget was part of 'Custom Taxonomies'. I've also installed 'Simple Taxonomies' since the upgrade to 2.8 and using their widget I get the same result with the sidebars' disappearance. Really sorry for the lack of info. On the right side bar, 'Choose Hotel' is from Simple Taxonomies' & the 2nd 'Choose Hotels' is from 'Custom Tax' (I tried deactivating the latter but re-installed it to show you).

BTW your theme has potential to infiltrate the entire web as it is the most friendly, adaptable and feature packed solution openly available. Congratulations.

Hi Juggledad,
Is there no-one else on the planet who uses Atahualpa with Taxonomy technology ? Is this post in the too hard basket? I've been trying really hard to get the theme working but I may have to swap as I'm now at "squeeze point". Please talk to me.

I've had no experience with Taxonomy so I'd be starting from scratch.

Do you have anything filled in at
ATO->Style & configure SIDEBARS->LEFT sidebar: Don't display on Pages:
ATO->Style & configure SIDEBARS->LEFT sidebar: Don't display on Categories::
ATO->Style & configure SIDEBARS->RIGHT sidebar: Don't display on Pages:
ATO->Style & configure SIDEBARS-> RIGHT sidebar: Don't display on Categories:

that's a shame. No, there's nothing in the above fields. In "RIGHT sidebar: Display on:" all boxes are checked. This doesn't happen in other themes, so I assume its because of the unique way ata handles page.php.

I have also tested it on a virgin site with no extra plugins except the pre-installed ata ones, and I still have the sidebars disappear.

Ok, thanks to Flynn, here is how to handle it for now.

Edit bfa_get_options.php and find line 188 which should be
HTML Code:
// Put the sidebar results into our global options variable in case we need it somewhere else:
now add the following right before that line
HTML Code:
if ( is_archive() AND !(is_tag() OR is_author() OR is_date() OR is_category())) { 
    $cols = 3; /* center column + number of sidebars */
     $left_col = "on";
    # $left_col2 = "on";
    $right_col = "on";
    #$right_col2 = "on";
}
where
$left_col = left
$left_col2 = left inner
$right_col = right
$right_col2 = right inner
and you want to comment/uncomment the sidebar's you are using.

As the young ones say; "You Rock Man !!" That is the perfect solution. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. This opens up incredible doors for searching and categorizing.
